Huskies squeak by Tommies in OT

If you didn't get to watch this afternoon's game between Saint Mary's and St. Thomas, well sorry for you because it was a goody.  The end result wasn't what Tommie fans were hoping for but the game itself was great with the Huskies pulling out a 4 to 3 OT win.

SMU scored the only goal of the first period but were outshot by the Tommies 10 to 8.

The Tommies took the lead in the second period on the strength of two powerplay markers by rookie Teah Anderson.

The third period saw SMU tie it up with under nine minutes to play.  Overtime loomed but Kelty Apperson scored unassisted with 1:58 to go to restore STU's lead.  However, the lead lasted exactly 10 seconds as the Huskies had a great bounce back shift to tie the game and force OT.

Saint Mary's would score at 2:31 to win the game but it wasn't without controversy. It isn't clear what the problem was but Coach Murphy argued with the refs for a while pleading his case.  The zebra's wouldn't change the call and the Lady Tommies saluted them with a tapping of the sticks congratulating them on SMU's win.

The game had a playoff atmosphere to it and the winner secured 2nd place in the standings.  Great to see Anderson getting a pair of ginos and it was GOOD to see Kenya Marcelline back on the ice after a long absence.
